|Susan Luery, a native of Baltimore, Maryland, attended the Maryland Institute College of Art during the early 1970s. After completing several public commissions, such as: The Dawn of Consciousness, located in Baltimore City; The Mayor's Garden, acquired by New York City's Cloisters Museum; and The Passage, located at the Towson Court in Towson, Maryland, she moved to Italy to study with master sculptor Alberto Sparapani, an internationally recognized artist.
After a long and successful association with Sparapani, Susan went on to create many noteworthy pieces, including a work acquired by His Royal Highness Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, and Princess Diana, completed in 1981. The work, titled Promethean Radiation, makes Susan the youngest American artist represented in the Royal Collection of Great Britain.
A great number of private and public museum collections house Susan's work, including the Naples Philharmonic Art & Cultural Center, the Cloisters Museum and the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Recognized as a world renowned sculptor, Susan was selected to create monumental-size pieces such as The Elimination, The Celebration of Life, Babe's Dream and Cal Ripken. Utilizing her creative talents, Susan continues to produce exceptional sculptures for both private commissions and self-fulfillment.
